Narrative Writing

Write a story that begins with the sentence: ‘Walking past, they tried to ignore him, ignore the failings of humanity.’

LAYOUT – Experiment with using this narrative structure – it may help your writing style

Panoramic – describe the scene, broadly. Introduce the time and setting.

Zoom – focus your lens in on your character/s, describe them in detail.

Single line – add one line of dialogue from your character/s.

Shift – describe the incident that is taking place in the scene, talk the reader through the senses.

Shift – how does the incident reach a climax point? How does the atmosphere/mood change?

Panoramic – zoom out to look at the scene as a whole, how has it changed given the new information?

REMINDER

You must include:

  • a range of linguistic devices
  • a range of punctuation
  • ambitious vocabulary
  • varied structural features.

Plan before you write. Consider what you need to include (specifically) and where you will include it; create a tick list.

The incident does not have to be anything major – it can be an ordinary day, as long as it is convincing and compelling.

Year 11 Reading Homework Due Monday 26th February

Read the extract carefully. Then complete the questions required.

Paper 2A HUNTING – Year 11 – Q1,3 and 4

Question 1: Read the question and identify the lines carefully.  Simply shade in the circle in the box next to all of the ‘true’ statements.

Question 3: You will need to read the source carefully and identify how language has been used to describe the guerrilla.

Although it doesn’t state it in the question, you should comment on the impact of individual words and phrases, language techniques and (only if there is something meaningful to say) sentence forms.

Remember in each paragraph to: statement + quotes + inferences + effect on reader + zoom in + writer’s purpose

The mark scheme 

  • Explain the effect of language – What does it make the reader think, feel or imagine?
  • Use evidence – Short and appropriate quotations.  For each of these zoom in on the language – what are the connotations of individual words? What is the writer’s purpose?
  • Use subject terminology – Be specific.

 

Question 4: Read both sources.  

For this question, you need to refer to the whole of Source A together with the whole of Source B.

Compare how the writers convey their different ideas and perspectives of the world of working women. In your answer, you could:

  • compare their different ideas and perspectives
  • compare the methods they use to convey their ideas and perspectives
  • support your response with references to both texts.

[16 marks]

My advice?

  1. Figure out the MAIN difference (or similarity depending on the Q) between the 2 texts;
  2. Find your evidence for that main difference form both sources- what method has been used?
  3. Find smaller differences between the 2 texts;
  4. Find the evidence from both sources and the methods used.

Remember paragraph structures: 

  • Comparative statement + source A statement + quotes + inferences + effect on reader + zoom in + writer’s purpose
  • Connective + Source B statement + quotes + inferences + effect on reader + zoom in + writer’s purpose

The mark scheme

  • Compare ideas and perspectives – Use comparison discourse markers
  • Explain how methods are used – What does it make the reader think, feel or imagine?
  • Use evidence – Short and appropriate quotations.  For each of these zoom in on the language – what are the connotations of individual words?
  • Clear understanding of different perspectives – What is the writer’s purpose?
